Unfortunately, leakage from the Rocky Mountain Arsenal (a nearby toxic waste dump/weapons storage location) caused a poisonous cloud that killed a lot of people in Denver. As an apology, the military funded a program to create a self-sustaining research dome, capable of withstanding a nuclear attack. This "city of the future" was to be a prototype for settlements on the moon and other planets.After the War, the Boulder Dome is still standing in midst of the blasted remains of the city, poisoned by radiation and toxic waste. Inside the dome is a desperate team of scientists infected with a strange disease and trying to keep their ZAX unit from cannibalizing it memory to such an extent that it stops working. Beset by glowing ghouls and a large pack of cannibal primitives, the dome faces extinction.
He was fully aware of the Vault Experiment program conducted by the Enclave, and has therefore tried to do everything to keep the Vault closed for 200 years, just as the program wanted it to be. As it is quite unlikely that he could have been more than 100 years old, the knowledge about the experiment was probably passed to him from the previous Overseer, most likely one of his parents. When the Vault's only functioning water chip got damaged and shut down, he sent one of the vault dwellers, who later became known as the Vault Dweller, into the wasteland to find a replacement chip. In the course of his adventure, the Vault Dweller ended up defeating the mutant threat, and was subsequently expelled from Vault 13, as the Overseer thought that he would ruin the Vault Experiment by convincing people to leave the Vault.Despite the Vault Dweller's exile, many people chose to follow him into the Wasteland. Although the Overseer tried to stop them, he was eventually tried and sentenced to death for his crime, probably after the dwellers learned about his involvement in the Experiment.

Bloomfield, surprisingly enough, survived the Great War – for the most part. Thanks to its very remote location in southwest Arizona, the only real damage that the space center received was from time and weather – and also the current occupants.The current occupants in question are the Rusty Hooks, as they like to be called. Comprised of two-dozen raiders, the Rusty Hooks came upon the remains of the Bloomfield Space Center about one year ago, drawn to the sight by tall, pointed structures (two space rockets) that could be seen on the horizon. The leader, Kyle "the Hook", knew they had found a special location and decreed among his faithful that this facility would be their permanent residence and base of operations.
